Pomona, Calif. — Developer Hanover Pacific and architecture and planning firm KTGY Group, Inc., have completed the Daumier at Western University of Health Sciences (WesternU).
The Daumier is a $45-million, 173,000-square-foot urban mixed-use graduate student housing community. Located on 3.6 acres adjacent to the WesternU campus in Pomona, Calif., the four-story building includes 305 beds as well as 10,000 square feet of academic space for WesternU, a private, non-profit graduate school for health professions.
Designed to achieve LEED for Homes Silver certification or higher, the new graduate student living community provides apartment accommodations that include a combination of single- and double-occupancy apartment units. The majority of the 202 units are two-bedroom, two-bath apartments and are located in a single building with controlled access. Amenities include a fitness center, community pool, study rooms, yoga studio, business center, complimentary coffee bar and valet services.
The Daumier is the result of a public/private partnership with the city of Pomona, the Vehicle Parking District, Hanover Pacific and Provident Resources Group, along with the support of WesternU. Hanover Pacific worked for more than one year with the city of Pomona to establish the public/private partnership, resulting in Hanover Pacific’s ability to procure a strategic parcel of land that is very close to campus and adjacent to one of the most popular academic buildings on campus, the newly built 180,000-square-foot Health Education Center, which was part of WesternU’s $100 million campus expansion project.
The project was financed with tax-exempt bonds and Provident Resources Group, a national not-for-profit 501(c)(3) with more than $1 billion in assets under ownership, is the owner and operator of the Daumier.
